Follow-up of Immunogenicity of Influenza Virus Vaccine, AdimFlu-S (A/H1N1), in Healthy Volunteers After 6 Months

2014-08-27 03:14:52 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In the spring of 2009, a recently emerged novel influenza A (H1N1) virus was first identified in Mexico and USA and it has continued to spread globally. The rapid global spread of a novel influenza A (H1N1) 2009 virus prompted the World Health Organization (WHO), on 11 June 2009, to declare the first influenza pandemic in 41 years. In Taiwan, a clinical study to assess the immunogenicity and safety of Influenza Virus Vaccine, AdimFlu-S (A/H1N1), in healthy volunteers has already been completed. In the previous study, we found that a single 15 mcg HA dose of the AdimFlu-S (A/H1N1) vaccine induces a protective immune response in most adults, including those > 60 years of age (>70%). Our current study aims to follow-up subjects who received Influenza Virus Vaccine, AdimFlu-S (A/H1N1), six months ago. These subjects' serum samples were tested for anti-hemagglutinin (HA) antibodies by hemagglutination inhibition (HAI). The seroconversion is defined as the post-vaccination serum HAI titer had at least 1:40 for subjects who had seronegative pre-vaccination or a four-fold or greater increase in HAI titers for subjects who had seropositive pre-vaccination serum. The immunogenicity of Influenza Virus Vaccine, AdimFlu-S (A/H1N1), in adults after half a year will be analyzed and discussed among the subjects with serum HAI titer had at least 1:40 at least 3 weeks after AdimFlu-S (A/H1N1) injection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.

Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.

Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.

A genus of the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE comprising viruses similar to types A and B but less common, more stable, more homogeneous, and lacking the neuraminidase protein. They have not been associated with epidemics but may cause mild influenza. Influenza C virus is the type species.

A genus in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE causing influenza and other diseases in humans and animals. It contains many strains as well as antigenic subtypes of the integral membrane proteins hemagglutinin (HEMAGGLUTININS) and NEURAMINIDASE. The type species is INFLUENZA A VIRUS.
